Lightwater Valley has a great deal to shout about when it comes to their attractions, activities and excellent amenities; but what really impressed me was the meticulous planning and consideration which has been applied to facilitating their disabled visitors. With ample disabled parking, ride access, concession ticket prices and free carer entry, The Park stands head and shoulders above its local peers, Flamingo Land, when it comes to facilitating their disabled guests.
A full on, action packed day out for all the family is surprisingly good value at Lightwater Valley! And we can make it even better; if you enter the code ‘ILOVENEWCASTLE‘ into the discount code box at the checkout page, you can purchase an adult day ticket for only £18.
